Working is a part of our lives, some people work to live and some live to work.  After many years of working out that “working” at ORL is all about balance. We spend more time with our workmates than we do with our own families, for this reason we see the right people at work as the most important part of the operation. Work should be a place where you can belong and contribute in a rewarding way along with some fun and challenge.

There are times when we are looking to grow our team with a specific role in mind, and are  times when the right mix of person, attitude and skills come along and we grow organically.  Often we find the best thing to do is develop the role around the person rather than creating the role and trying to find the perfect person. Flexibility in working arrangements with some give and take  usually work best for the business and the people.

Right now we are looking to grow the team with the following specific skills and abilities?
